My zanussi dryer keeps stopping saying water needs emptied but it is always empty. The vent valve is always falling out is there supposed to be something to stop this?

I read the posts then checked my drier. I found the valve at the back of the water tank was blocked with fluff. So I tilted the dryer and unscrewed and removed the valve so I could remove the trapped fluff. Problem solved.:-)

8kg Candy Condenser dryer keeps stopping and telling me the water compartment is full - trouble is , it isnt. is there a sensor that tends to stick on these models? Thanks, Andrew

Hi Andrew, Nothing I found on-line worked. So tonight I had a good look. Inside the machine at the back of where the water caddy fits there's a reservoir. This was full but oddly the water caddy was empty. On the caddy there's a spout with a valve, inside it was fine dark fluff which was being compressed every time the caddy was reinserted. I picked this out with a little stick. I also, and this may not be necessary, removed the valve socket that the caddy valve goes into. It's attached by three screws to the bottom of the machine. This was also clogged with the same sort of fluff. Both blockages were stopping water passing freely into the caddy and so water built up in the reservoir tripping the empty light. Something to check for. Anyway mine works fine now and thought I'd share. Best regards, Ed

I have a bosch WTE86304GB/03 tumble dryer red light says empty container, but container is empty, machine keeps stoping and flashing this light on ?

Hi the problems is not a sensor its the codenser unit. Above the water collector should be a panel on the front of your machine, open the panel and you will see the condeser.covered in fluff, simply remove the condeser and clean it under an outside tap after removing as much fluff as possible by hand. Push back into place when clean and hey presto back to new again.

Hoover 381/1 condenser tumble dryer empty water

Got a similar problem with an HNC172. The supplier said it is the water indicator sensor that is not working. He fixed it! It still stops!!! Clear lint from the trap in the door. Empty what little water there is in the tank, then make sure it has a good shove to get it back into place and the tube/catch is well joined back. Also take out the condenser unit above water tank, stick in the bath and put the shower hose through it to clear lint. Recommend getting a tea strainer over the plug hole or you block your drain as quite a bit comes out. It helped for a while, but it still has problems. Might be the thermostat for the heater? check the error codes. They flash a different number of times within 15 seconds to indicate which problem is happening.

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry

I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.
